CHAPTER V
PRIVATE LETTERS 1848-1857

And in her dexter hand she bore
A shining mass of shapeless ore.
My courage, voice, and memory gone,
I bow'd and kist the magic stone.
I urged attendance ; she complied ;
And now behold us side by side.
I speak ; the country people stare ..
" The Saxon speaks to empty air."
When all but lovers long had slept,
I tost and tumbled, fretted, wept,
To Love himself vow'd endless hate,
Renounced my stars and curst my fate ;
When, lo ! in pity to my tears,
I n sleep an angel form appears ;
" Subdue," she says, " regrets like these,
We angels vanish when we please."
My curtains, starting, I undrew ;
The Morn appear'd, the Vision flew.
Oct. 5, 1796

To Mrs Paynter.
[BATH, N091. 1857.]
DEAR MRS PAYNTER,
The verses I sent to you are in the earliest of my handwriting. So far they are curious, but your kind acceptance of them makes them of value to me. Pray keep them until the paper, which is now literally in the yellow leaf, utterly gives way. Few are living who have written verses sixtyone
